MISS KNOCKOUT A.K.A. TRUE TO THE GAME Female rappers are very few these days. And each one boast of being as tough and out spoken as the guys. That phrase is as generic as the being the only girl in the click. These days that’s just not good enough. The people want something different, original and vibrant. So let’s walk with KNOCKOUT and explore where she came from and how she plans to change the hip hop game and reinvent the market so the future little divas in training won’t have to go through the BULL with the business. Knockout comes from South Jamaica, Queens. And with that said, a certain mentality comes with growing up in South Jamaica, Queens; once you set out to do something, you’re so determined that no one can stop you. Coming up in foster homes, her adopted parents both passed away one month apart. This sent her yet to another home. And since 16, she has been on her own. KNOCKOUT has been performing since 14; starting out learning to Dee Jay at first. Learning tricks and jumping on the wheels as the secret weapon for most of the parties in the hood. No matter were the audience was, she put it down: on the corner of the block, the subway parks, you name it. She used to go around the corner and sit on the stoop and watch Run DMC play dice in the middle of the block with no body guards; three down to earth guys, while being the biggest hip hop group in the world. It was at that moment that she realized this is what she wanted to do with her life. School bored her. But when she did show up, she would maintain her straight A average. This boggled teachers who soon discovered she read excessively at home and wrote what they thought was complicated poetry, but turned out to be her freestyle for a demo she was dropping after school. Back then and to date, she’s in the game because she really loves it and not for money or nice clothes. Soon she was at every battle in the NYC area; mostly all guys back then, because for some reason, girls wouldn’t come out too much. Her angle was not the bouncy flow, but a flow with authority. She would always win or be runner up. When she started to study the game, she found that battle rappers couldn’t sell records. It was like a jinx; so she got out of what she referred to as battle mode and focused on making songs. Her friends went to college and she stood by hip hop faithfully, like holy matrimony. She began interning here and there, go to free seminars to network and do some showcases. Watching the game change right before her eyes, all she could think of was why are there only four girls out in all these years; and why, if we are so few, are we fighting amongst ourselves. You see, the label switched gears on females because they felt that all females were the same, neck-snapping divas with bad attitudes. The vibe got crazy when two female rappers were in the same room. This made it challenging to find her niche. So she decided to create her own market; first by setting up a night with a live band at New York’s legendary Nells Night Club in Manhattan. This prompted an advertising agency to do a radio ad with her for Seagram’s Gin Bumpy Bottle Campaign. Then she did a showcase, with her opening and then other acts following, which packed two levels at Club Downtime in Manhattan. This ultimately led her to do a monthly showcase called Rock the Mic Right Showcase. This showcase helped make her a recognized name in the business. At about that time was when Jean Claude the Funky Pirate, a club promoter introduced her to Francky Moulet, a legendary bass player whom she renamed Dr. Dre from France. Signing her single deal for the compilation album called From Paris to Brooklyn on Relief Records; also home to Narhed (out on a rock), Francky's partner and fellow artist. This album features collabos with M1 and Sean Price and many rappers and R&B singers blended with Francky's ever changing beats. The compilation was released December 2005, and currently they are looking for international distribution in the states. You see, this couldn’t come at a better time. Sometimes you have to sit back and study the game so you know what not to do. The single featured on the album is called Get It Get It. This song is a hip hop track with a dancehall vibe but hard hitting, marketable, lyrical content that will set the dance floor on fire. Also, check the song, Ten, as she puts it down with M1 and Sean Price. Now you won’t hear her say she rhymes like a guy or brag about her deep voice because what’s going to send her flying of the shelves is she’s different, with her own style like no one else. People are tired of jealous acting rap chicks. Let’s show people we are intelligent, but have authority; sexy, but complex. As a published writer at Floss Magazine, Miss Knockout has interviewed and wrote articles on major Artist such as 50 Cent and G Unit, Keyshia Cole, E-40,Trey Songz, Lamar Odom, Patricia Fields, Rachel Roy to name a few. She stumbled upon an all female music website called Queenpenz, loaded up her songs and lock jaws into the No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 spots on the charts for four months. The owners declared her the face of Queenpenz and have her hosting her own radio show at blogtalkradio.com/queenpenz every Sunday night from 8p.m. ‘til 10 p.m. Her song, Step Up, is currently being spun by DJs at Power 106 FM in California and some of New York's biggest DJs like DJ Self at Power 105, has played her songs. She’s confident and not intimidated by challenges women are often faced with in the business. “Female rap artists, I believe, would go much further in realizing each of us has something different and unique to the game. Sacrificing a career, college, maybe a family, because you are so determined to do something you love is a gamble. And it looks like the bet will finally pay off because the buzz is on and it only takes the right opportunity to present itself to MISS KNOCKOUT and the game will never be the same. With MISS KNOCKOUT comes change; and change is inevitable. She’s confident and ready to lead by example and break the cycle for females in the industry. *************************************************************** "I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
